Work Party Makeup

This week, I’ve been representing the magazine I work for a lot, and tonight is no exception. We have a work-related function after working hours, so I thought I’d keep it professional, yet fun for the event tonight. Here’s the look and check out the details below the photos.

My Latest Too Faced Haul

I know, I know. As you can tell, I’m a little obsessed with Too Faced products. But since I won’t be purchasing any more makeup until my next paycheck, I wanted to share my latest haul with you all (haha, that rhymed!).

Love Blush in Your Love is King

Melted Matte liquified matte lipstick in Child Star (I wore this in my professional glam look post yesterday)

Absolutely Flawless concealer

I tried the blush and highlighter this morning, but I don’t know how I feel about it yet. Love the colors in both, but I think I need a better blush brush and highlighter brush to get the complete look.

What are your favorite Too Faced products? I’d love to know.

Professional Glam Look

Today I am heading back to my alma mater, San Francisco State University, to help judge magazine ideas for a contemporary magazines class (my full time job is the digital media manager for Marin Magazine in Sausalito, CA). That being said, I decided to do a full face of makeup today since I will be out representing the magazine. Why do I call it “professional glam”? Because the gold layer of eyeshadow has glitter galore in it. Subtle enough for the workplace, but glamorous enough to up your every day makeup game. I used a variety of products that I will list below. Here are a couple snaps of my look:

So that’s my look! I received my latest Too Faced order yesterday and will be writing a post about those products soon, as well as my before and after series with the solid beautycleanser I purchased from Sephora.

I hope you like this look!

Party Look Using (Mainly) Too Faced Products

On Saturday, my husband and I drove down to Santa Cruz for a friend’s going away party. Since we would be seeing people we hadn’t seen since our wedding last October and since I’d be meeting new people, I thought I’d create a new party look. If you remember, my last haul from Sephora included the Too Faced Boudoir Eyes eyeshadow palette, so I decided to give that a go. Here are two photos of my look: one showing everything, and the other, a close up of my shimmery eye shadow. Read below the photos to see how I blended the eye look.

Sephora Beauty Haul

While I’m not sharing a lipstick swatch and look with you guys (check out my last three about Melted Matte Queen B, Melted Matte Sell Out and La Matte Sorry, Not Sorry), I am sharing my latest haul from Sephora with you. Of course there is a Too Faced eyeshadow palette included, but a couple of essentials, too.

First off, this Too Faced Boudoir Eyes palette is amazing. I love that they include a little booklet showing you three different looks in just three steps. All these colors are shades that I use, so I can’t wait to try it out. Also, that packaging! Super cute.

Next up, the classic beauty blender. I cannot live without this product. I have two from Ulta that I purchased and use it daily to apply my foundation and concealer and touch up any areas needed after applying a liquid lipstick or eyeshadow. It provides a flawless look and just blends everything perfectly.

Lastly, I have yet to try this product, but am super excited to. The blendercleanser has received rave reviews on Sephora.com and I have been looking for easier ways to clean my beauty blenders, so I thought I’d give this product a try. I will be using it tonight, so I will report with a “before and after” post featuring my blenders.

Here’s a closer look at the colors featured in the Boudoir Eyes palette by Too Faced. Love, love love!

La Matte Lipstick from Too Faced

As you can tell by my latest posts, I am really loving matte lipsticks right now. Before I even purchased my latest Melted Matte lipsticks, I had purchased a couple La Matte lipsticks from Too Faced. Today’s photo features the color Sorry, Not Sorry. I love the way this feels on my lips. It keeps them moisturized and they don’t crack throughout the day.

I’ll re-share my base makeup products with you too:

Face:

Primer: Primed & Poreless Pure Face Primer for Sensitive Skin by Too Faced

Foundation: Born This Way in Warm Nude by Too Faced

Concealer: Bye Bye Under Eye by it Cosmetics

Powder/bake: Primed & Poreless Priming Powder and Finishing Veil by Too Faced

My Latest Haul from Too Faced

I have been obsessed with Too Faced products for quite a while now, and they just came out with the Melted Matte liquid lipstick and I decided to order a couple shades, as well as some other things (like their set of brushes). Here’s my latest haul, with some pictures of the packaging, because it’s just that cute.
